DESCRIPTION

This attractively designed map focuses on Boston proper and features inset views of Boston Harbor, the State Capital building, and the Bunker Hill Monument.

In addition to delineating the street pattern and identifying major public buildings, the map highlights the city's role as a transportation center by labeling the wharves along the harbor and by showing the location of railroad stations, with terminals of at least four rail lines radiating out from the city and providing access to the neighboring countryside.
